for my master's thesis I'm looking for the definition of basic blocks that
are used in the compiler back end.
What I actually want to know, is, if call instructions are treated like
any other instruction or if they cause the end of a basic block.
I've encountered both versions. Some people use call instructions amid
a basic block, other use them at the end of a basic block and continue
with the subsequent instructions in a new block.
Are both version correct?
Thank you for your answer.
I would also appreciate if you could give my any references (paper, url ...)
concerning that issue.
[It entirely depends on your language and the goals of your optimizations.
If a call can change variables visible in the block, you'd best break
the block there. If not, no need. -John]
